DESCRIPTION

The sinh() and sinhf() functions compute the hyperbolic sine of x. Both sinh(x) and sinhf(x) are defined as (exp(x) - exp(-x))/2.

The cosh() and coshf() functions compute the hyperbolic cosine of x. Both cosh(x) and coshf(x) are defined as (e**x + e**(-x))/2.

The tanh() and tanhf() functions compute the hyperbolic tangent of x. Both tanh(x) and tanhf(x) are defined as (e**x - e**(-x))/(e**x + e**(-x)).

The sinhcosh() and sinhcoshf() functions compute both the hyperbolic sine and hyperbolic cosine of x. Both sinhcosh(x) and sinhcoshf(x) are defined as sinh x + icosh x.

The following table describes function behavior in response to exceptional arguments:
